Here's a wee poem I made up last year.

Nostalgia:

Nostalgia, oh, it's not what it was,
It's lost all it's magic somehow.
For the things I remembered were better back then,
Than the things I remember now.

My favourite Milliganism

The boy stood on the burning deck
melting in the heat
his sad brown eyes were full of tears
his shoes were full of feet


anon
The worms go in and the worms come out
they go in thin and they come out stout OOOOOOOooooooow

As I woke one morning,
When all sweet things are born,
A robin perched upon my sill,
To signal the coming morn,
He was so sweet and gentle,
As softly he did sing,
Sweet thought of love and happiness,
Into my heart did spring,
He sang his song so gently,
Then as he paused a lull,
I swiftly closed the window,
And crushed his fucking skull.

anon

A young lass I know from Black Rod,
Is having a baby from God.
But 'twas not the almighty,
That crawled up her nightie,
'Twas the vicar, the dirty old sod!

There was an unusual trucker,
Whose manners were awfully pukkah,
If he picked up a lift
That he wanted to shift
He'd invite her for tea and then fuck her.

A wise old owl sat in an oak
The more he heard, the less he spoke
The less he spoke, the more he heard
Now wasn't that a wise old bird?

...and now that Jack and Jill verse reminds me:

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
At least that's what they said they did
But now they've got a daughter

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water,
Jill came down with half a crown,

But not for carrying water.

Of all the lovely sights on earth
there's nothing to compare
to a girl who pulls on high-top boots
and then her underwear.

WHALE
OIL
BEEF
HOOKED

Tony Capstick, bless him, used to say;

"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high, along trees and river banks
I trod upon a bloke's bare arse
And heard a woman's voice say "Thanks."

I eat my peas with honey,
I've done it all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny
But it keeps them on the knife.




Manchester Piccadilly, and Alsatians to Crewe
For a day at the end of platform two.
Butties in duffle bag, tea in a flask.
Why do you do it? Why do you ask?

From Sir (wot no knighthood yet) Les Barker




The boy stood on the burning deck.


TWIT!

Of all the fishes in the seas,
The strangest is the bass.
It climbs into the tops of trees
And slides down on its hands and knees
To frolic in the grass.

The boy stood on the burning deck
His arse against the mast.
He dared not move a fucking inch
Till the dreaded bummer passed.

This bummer was a crafty sod
He threw the lad a fritter.
The lad bent down to pick it up -
WHAM !! Six inches up his shitter.

In the merry month of Liverpool
In the City of July,
The rain was snowing heavily
And the streets were desert dry.
The elephant is a bonny bird
Which flies across the sky -
It makes its nest in rhubarb trees
And yodels like a fly.

Davy Crockett
Built a rocket.
The rocket went "bang !",
His ball went clang
And he found his prick in a pocket.

When I was young I had no sense
I ripped my bollocks on a barbed-wire fence.
Off to the doctor's I did go
Balls and all I had to show.
He set me on a ten foot stool
And cut four inches off my tool.
When I came home my sister laughed
To see a broom without a shaft.

(I'll get me Barbour . . . )

BERTHA'S WISH

I wish my eyes were green instead of brown.
I wish my stomach went in instead of out.
I wish he would stand on the top of the tallest building and shout,
"I love you, Amanda!"

One more wish:
I wish my name was Amanda.

--Judith Viorst

[MISERICORDIA!]

Misericordia!
College of Cardinals,
Nervously rising to
Whisper its will:
"Rather than being so
Unecumenical,
Can't we just quietly
Swallow the Pill?"

--James Lipton


EGGOMANIA

Consider the egg. It's a miracle,
A thing so diverse for its size
That we hardly can help growing lyrical
When given the Pullet Surprise.

The scope of this peerless comestible
Must drive other foods to despair
Since it's not only fully digestible
But great for shampooing the hair.

It's boilable, poachable, fryable;
It scrambles, it makes a sauce thicken.
It's also the only reliable
Device for producing a chicken.

--Felicia Lamport

Mary had a little lamb
A little pork, a little jam.
Some ice cream soda topped with fizz
And oh how sick our Mary is.
(Grandma taught me that one.)

Help murder polce!
My wife fell in the grease!
I laughed so hard I fell in the lard!
Help murder police!

As an epicure meticulous
I relish roast rhinoceros,
But when I'm feeling frivolous
I start with pickled octopus.

While partaking of my polypus
I just eat each metatarsus;
The legs I find monotonous
And slightly cartilaginous.

I remember these from reading selections from the Science Fiction Book Club in the 1950's [but not the authors]:

Little Willie made a slip
While landing in his rocket ship
See that bright actinic glare
That's our little Willie there

When they settled the nightside of Mercury
The settlers named the dome Mayfair
But they soon rechristened it June
Because what is so rare as a day there?
